VANCOUVER -The Everett AquaSox, with the help of two Vancouver errors, defeated the Canadians 5-1 Saturday at Nat Bailey Stadium in a Northwest League game.

The first-place AquaSox, who improved to 11-5 and hold a two-game lead over Salem-Keizer in the West Division, open a three-game homestand against Vancouver today at Everett Memorial Stadium. Game time is 4:05 p.m.

The AquaSox, who had two hits in the first six innings and trailed 1-0, took advantage of two Vancouver errors to score three runs in the seventh inning.

Everett’s Rob Johnson reached on a fielder’s choice and Yung Chi Chen was hit by a pitch. Both scored on a throwing error by Vancouver shortstop Gregorio Petit. Trevor Heid, who reached on Petit’s error, scored on an error by Canadians’ first baseman Tom Everidge.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Johnson and Chen hit singles as the AquaSox scored two more runs in the eighth to take a 5-1 lead.

Chen was 2-for-3 with an RBI and Johnson had a RBI and scored two runs for Everett.

The AquaSox stole four bases to increase their league-leading total to 32.

Everett starter Aaron Jensen went six innings, allowing five hits to improve to 3-0. Relief pitcher Joe Woerman retired nine straight batters in three innings of work to record his first save.

The Canadians (6-10) took an early 1-0 lead on two hits in the second inning. With one out, Petit singled to left, stole second, and scored on Don Sutton’s double off the left field wall.

Vancouver starting pitcher Braulio Santana, who gave up six runs in 41/3 innings in a season-opening loss to Everett, retired the first eight Everett batters he faced before giving up a double to Elvis Cruz in the third inning. Cruz was stranded when Oswaldo Navarro popped out.

The AquaSox squandered their second scoring opportunity in the fifth inning. Chen, who reached on an infield single and stole second, was stranded when Santana struck out Omar Falcon to end the inning.

Through six innings, the right-handed Santana had retired 18 of the first 22 batters he faced before being pulled in the seventh inning. Santana dropped to 0-2.
